Woody Harrelson is lending his voice to a yet another documentary tackling the climate crisis.
Kiss the Ground, directed by Rebecca and Josh Tickell, is coming to Netflix. But unlike other popular documentaries on our climate crises, Kiss the Ground aims to leave the audience hopeful, by following an “innovative” way to tackle excess carbon dioxide.
“There’s so much bad news about our planet, it’s overwhelming. Truth is, I’ve given up,” Harrelson tsays in the trailer. “This is the story of a simple solution, a way to heal our planet. The solution is right under our feet — and it’s as old as dirt.”
The answer to our climate crisis could be right under our feet — literally. The film examines the relationship between carbon sequestering and healthy soil.
“To cure our planet we need to cure our soil,” the trailer title card reads, “using plants, trees and techniques of grazing and farming to capture carbon and store it into the soil.”
“We can fix a lot of our climate issue if we bring the CO2 down into a living plant and put it down into the soil where it belongs,” says another expert in the film.
Along with Harrelson, the film features celebrities including siblings David and Patricia Arquette, Jason Mraz, Ian Somerhalder, and Gisele Bündchen, and her husband Tom Brady.
“Our health and the health of our planet are connected,” Bundchen says.
“I’ll make you a deal — I won’t give up, and neither should you,” Harrelson says.
The documentary begins streaming on Netflix September 22.
